Curiosity and the Cattle
We’ve been performing magic for a living for 27 years. Even though we’re based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, we’ve travelled North America, seen a lot of strange things and met some interesting people.
At an elegant corporate awards show, Mike and I were performing strolling close up magic from group to group. Everyone was dressed in suits, ties, beautiful gowns etc… so you get the feel of how upscale this event was. Right in the middle of a piece of amazing “in stereo” magic, the gentleman standing directly in front of us gets down on the floor on one knee, and looks up at the group. We ask what he’s doing? His reply, “I’ve always wanted to see magic from under the magicians’ hands.” The group took it in stride and the entertainment continued. It was an unusual occurrence, but we couldn’t help but admire this person for just going for it and satisfying his curiosity.
We’ve always been driven to be more than just another magic act. Mike and I work hard so that our “twin twists” will have the most impact possible on our audience. It forces us be more creative. Isla Crawford, the interior designer, lives by, “Make the ordinary, extraordinary.” That’s a great definition of magic. So be curious and you’ll surprise yourself.
The title of this piece mentions cattle, but this is a vegetarian story, so there’s no beef. Your curiosity got the best of you. Extraordinary!
